Las Vegas Guardianship Lawyer
Guardianships are a legal mechanism whereby an individual may obtain legal responsibility for the care and management of a minor child, a special needs or elderly adult, and/or their financial estate.
Occasionally, a minor children may need to be cared for by someone who is not their parent either on a temporary or extended basis as the result of a parent being unavailable (or unable or unwilling) to personally provide for the child’s care over an extended period of time. For instance, a parent serving in the military may be deployed, a parent may be facing a period of incarceration, or a parent who may be struggling with a substance dependency issue which may render the parent unable or unavailable to provide appropriate care for their minor children. In such instance, grandparents, other relatives, family friends, or another third-party, may be needed to provide care for the children. Establishing a Guardianship empowers the such third-party care providers to assure the ongoing care of the children, such as being able to obtain medical care, enroll the children in school, and provide for their day-to-day care.
Similarly, a Guardianship can be an important tool for assuring the ongoing care of a special needs or elderly adult who may be unable to manage his/her own affairs, including medical care and financial matters.
